Characters Appearing: Alicia Masters, Thing
Issue(s): Thing #7
Then, in the back-up (written and drawn by Byrne), the Thing shows up at the Marvel office upset about this issue.
It seems that the Thing did indeed fight a "Goody Two Shoes", but John Byrne embellished it a bit.
John Byrne's office in this issue is drawn exactly like the Sub-Mariner's office from Fantastic Four #9.
Incredibly obscure homage. I'm impressed with that, and the fact that a reader was able to point it out in the lettercol for issue #12 (i would never have noticed).
The Thing almost proposes to Alicia at the beginning of this issue - we're assured in the lettercol for issue #12 that this did indeed "happen" even though the majority of this issue was a joke.
Quality Rating: B-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Alicia Masters is still in the hospital this issue.
Crossover: Assistant Editors' Month
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
